I love how you have intertwined the Trio and Ginny.  Sweet.  It was cool to reflect back on another of your works where Harry and Ron think that old broom in the car must be Hermione's.  I would also have liked to have seen some reflection by Molly and Arthur about Molly contributing to Hermione's very existence.  It was neat to see Hermione calling Dudley on his bad behavior even before she knew the extent of it!

Is Peter the one who will not be joining them?  Clearly, that's a Marauder who won't be going anywhere nice for his afterlife.  Is it Lupin who does not accept death yet?  Lupin was with them once Harry brought them with him into the forest so if he is who you are referring to, he better get with that acceptance thing!

Other than some confusion with that line, this is my favorite of your series.  Snape and Sirius should be sparring with each other; even if they're on the same side, it would be unnatural to be buddy-buddy.  Funny and touching.  Good job!

This one is the hardest for me.  I understand that we now know that Dumbledore wasn't perfect and some people do suffer for 'the greater good".  But I believe that no matter what was necessary, Dumbledore genuinely viewed Snape and Harry with affection and he would rather have not put them into the positions that he did.  There is so much more to explore here; I hope your Snape will come to see that.  We also need to realize that everything that happened to Snape was part of his own redemption for the part he played in the death of the Potters.  He has done his penance and been revealed to be on the side of the Light to all who would defame him.  I think that ultimately, other than that nasty snake bite to the neck, of course, he came out pretty well considering where he could have ended up.   

Author's Response:

Funnily enough I agree with a lot of what you say. This drabble was actually more about my views of Dumbledore changing so much and my feelings of betrayal essentially. I tried to put myself in the mind of an 11 year old Snape who came to Hogwarts from a disfunctional family and a perhaps abusive father and how he would be looking for a father figure. He would try really hard to find that in Dumbledore. His affections where tested way before he betrayed the Potters, way before he was asked to turn spy. I believe it was first tested when the boys who almost killed him with a "practical joke" got off with little or no punishment. I imagined that had to have hurt a boy who never had anyone stand up for him. So yes, Snape paid for his mistakes by doing Dumbledore's bidding, but there is no denying that Dumbledore used Snape's guilt against him. Does that make any sense?

Can you tell I've put way too much thought into those 100 word stories? Thanks for you reading and reviewing them!

Why doesn't Lupin know how love feels?  Tonks?  Harry?  Sirius? James & Lily?  Lupin had plenty of people who loved him.  I guess my earlier question about whether Lupin accepts his death is answered here, "a bit pointless really".  I have to agree; I would much rather have a live Lupin than the newest orphan boy.  Too sad.   



Author's Response:

What I was trying to say by Lupin responding to the love issue that way is that--while he has been loved, and has loved, that in my mind, he has never felt he was worthy of it, that he deserved it. That was the love that Harry was surviving with that he (and Snape) had never felt. That for me, is what works for Snupin, their issues with self worth.

This was very good.  I really liked Neville telling Hermione he'd learned to smile and nod at her years before even though Ron hadn't seemed to learn that lesson yet.  Your explanation as to why he didn't seek them out before taking the long walk was just right...the only reason there would be.  Good job!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I had to think hard about what Harry would say in reply!

This is a really great concept.  Gave me leaky eyes just like Ron.

 You've got a couple of perspective issues where you seem to jump from 3rd person to 1st person.  I don't mean your italicized sections; those are a nice touch with his thoughts.  Specifically, paragraph 4 & 12 have this problem.  Otherwise I loved this !



Author's Response:

Yeah... i haven't written in a very long time, and once i got going, i didn't really stop, even though i got sidetracked with the perspective... Its a reacuring issue that i will probably lose.

In any case thank you for your review
